Sextantio Albergo Diffuso - the soul of a building with a touch of poetic license
Generally speaking, Sextantio is a Albergo Diffuso (diffused Hotel), located in Santo Stefano di Sessanio, a nice hill town in the province of L’Aquila. What is impressive, is the mission and philosophy behind the rebirth of this medieval gem.
In a country like Italy, urban planning and architecture should preserve the historical and cultural soul of sites. Italy has about 17000 nearly totally abandoned historic towns.
The Sextantio company has decided to restore preserved villages like Santo Stefano di Sessanio, giving life back to these unique corners with the Albergo diffuso approach, but also with restaurants, serving wine cellars, tea rooms and shops with domestic crafts.
The mission is to save all forms of territorial identity of those places of “marginality”, where past civilizations and cultures survive nowadays. Sexantio Albergo Diffuso is a suggestive example of preservation of architectural and historical heritage, natural landscape integrity and local materials cultures, from craft to cookery. To sum up, Where to holiday in Italy? Obviously, in Abruzzo!
